Dream


This is a gift I received from K, our amazing future gestational carrier, which accompanied a card saying "Dream about a positive experience and an additional member of your family." I absolutely love it and have to admit that I've been doing a lot of dreaming lately!


K and I went out for dinner and chatted about surrogacy. I am amazed at how comfortable and at ease she is with this idea. K makes me calmer and more and more excited about going down this path. K kept making comments about "when she's pregnant with our baby" and it made me smile. Previously I was worried about being envious/jealous of someone carrying my baby and much to my surprise there was not one moment when I felt anything but gratitude towards her.


I find myself at a loss for words to express my gratitude and appreciation to K and her family. J and I often talk about how it's nearly impossible to thank someone enough for providing such an amazing gift. We just hope K knows what a wonderful person she is and how much we love her!

I am so happy you are able to have dreams instead of the nightmares you have been going through with infertility, miscarriage, etc. You deserve this so mucha nd I am so glad you have been blessed with a joyful carrier for your baby. I bet Myles is really full of smiles today as he looks down at his happy mama from heaven!!

Oh to dream a little dream...

I think K sounds like an incredible person and I think she is just as lucky to be carrying your baby as you are to have her carry him/her.
